RECOMMENDED PROPERTIES IN FUJAIRAH

FUJAIRAH

The easternmost of the United Arab Emirates, Fujairah is the only Emirate not to have a coastline along the Persian Gulf. It is also the youngest of the Emirates, only becoming independent from Sharjah in 1952.

The Al Badiyah Mosque is the oldest known mosque in the United Arab Emirates. It is located in a small village about 50 km north from region center. This mosque is also known as Ottoman Mosque (named after the person who had constructed it). The mosque is believed to be built in 1446 AD, along with the two watch towers overlooking the mosque and the village.

Located in proximity to Ain Al Madhab Gardens, the Fujairah Heritage Village is a living museum depicting the lifestyles of traditional inhabitants of the UAE. There are displays of traditional farming methods, tools, housing, and cooking utensils, depicting the traditional lifestyle of residents. The Heritage Village also includes the Fujairah Fortress and other ancient buildings used by the Ruler’s family.

Al Hayl Castle is one of the famous castles in Fujairah, and is considered the Headquarters for ruling family. The Historic castle was established more than 250 years ago, and has been used for surveillance, patrolling and to defend the area.

Built in 1670, the Fujairah Fort is one of the oldest forts in the UAE. Located along a hill at the edge of date gardens, the Fort has been a defensive building and home for ruling family. The fort, which was badly damaged during the early 20th century, was later renovated, and is currently the only stone building along the Fujairah coast. It is surrounded by remains of few old town houses.

The Fujairah Museum is located south of the Fort, opposite Ruler’s Palace. The Museum displays items that dates back to Bronze Age, displaying wonderful artefacts found in archeological digs at Bithnah and Oidfa. The Museum displays pieces of steel, brass, silver, bronze and gold, apart from carved soapstone vessels, painted pottery, Pre-Islamic silver coins, swords of various shapes and sizes, beautiful silver jewellery collection, herbs and folkloric medicine.

Located at the foothills of Hajar Mountains, outside the town of Fujairah, the Ain Al Madhab Gardens is more than just a mineral spa. These lush gardens are fed with fresh water springs. They also include natural warm pools and an outdoor theatre, used during festivals for traditional singing and folklore dances.
